UK - Insight Investments has recruited several leading figures from Schroders' fixed income team following Michael Amey's move to PIMCO.
Robert Gall, head of fixed income; Andrew Wickham, head of sterling fixed income; and Richard Dryer, fixed income fund manager, will all join Insight’s fixed income team in the next few months.
Gall and Wickham will join Insight as co-heads of UK fixed income. Dryer joins as a credit fund manager.
At Schroders, Gall was head of the European fixed income team with £3bn of assets under management. Dryer joined in 1997 and had sole responsibility for the performance of just over £2bn invested in sterling-denominated investment grade corporates.
Their appointments follow Amey’s decision to join PIMCO as senior vice-president in charge of UK fixed income.
Amey – who will report to Emanuele Ravano, executive vice-president and head of portfolio management in London – will be the UK lead portfolio manager.
He will focus on adding value in UK fixed interest mandates and be a principal architect in the development of UK and pan-European investment strategy.
